What is a virtual job fair?
Our virtual job fairs are free online events that connect primary care trainees and practicing clinicians with health care facilities with job openings.
During the job fair, you can learn about medical, nursing, dental, and behavioral health job openings directly from health care facilities.
What should I do in advance?
Before you register for a job fair, complete a clinician profile on the Health Workforce Connector. Using the Health Workforce Connector, you can search thousands of employment and training opportunities in underserved communities across the nation. Based on your profile, interested sites can follow up with you after the event.
